Our next departure:

March 14-21: 8-Days Cultural Tour to Lake  Turkana

WELCOME TO TEKWA

From Nairobi, Kenya, TEKWA will take you on an adventure of a lifetime:

Re-discover the Cradle of Mankind around the alluring  Jade Sea of Lake Turkana, explore the majestic Lake Victoria in ‘Western’ and its enchanting Rusinga Island, immerse yourself in the picturesque Swahili coast from Mombasa in Kenya all the way to Dar es-Salaam in Tanzania, or simply join us on an unforgettable discovery tour through the colonial history of Nairobi, Kenya’s green city in the sun!

All our tours are guided by a professional Swiss historian specialised in African/Kenyan history and who speaks English, German, French and Spanish.

So, if history, anthropology and palaeontology, but also discovering breathtaking landscapes and meeting the colourful peoples of Africa is your ‘thing’, then then we would be delighted to welcome you on one of our scheduled tours or to compile for you tailor-made tours to the most fascinating places in East Africa…

WALKING THROUGH NAIROBI’S HISTORY

TEKWA would like to invite you for a walk (part 1 and part 2) through Nairobi, introducing you to the development as well as to important historical sites in this cosmopolitan city.

The tour was impressive. I am really grateful to Therese for organising such tours, because on our own we would have never ventured into these parts of the country. On the other hand, the tour is very well organised, we were always well taken care of and never felt a slightest danger. You don’t have to be a super-risky adventurer to take part; we had 10-12 year old kids in the group. Therese goes out of her way to provide a lot of background information and hire knowledgeable local guides. So it’s not only seeing, but also learning a lot. I am looking forward to my next tour with Tekwa Cultural Tours.

12 DAYS EAST TURKANA, APRIL 2017

The trip to Lake Turkana that I undertook with TEKWA was one of the most impressive tours I’ve ever took. It was just the right mixture of culture, adventure, and a bit of unpretentious luxury from time to time. For me it was the perfect way of exploring Northern Kenya. Christoph, Germany.
